Egypt’s Unique Saturn Cycle, Kemetic Law And The Spirit Of Sadat

Saturn, Saturday, Sadat

Most people have at least two Saturn Returns in their lifetime. Countries, if they stay together will experience a Saturn Return every 28 years. Egypt is no exception. In fact, it gets to experience two Saturn Returns every 28 years. How can that be you ask?

Many sources attribute Egypt’s independence on the day that it freed itself from the English Protectorate. That was on 2/28/22, thus making Egypt a Pisces country. More on this later. On that day, Saturn was at 6 degrees Libra, which means it has been in its current Saturn Return since November, 2009 just four months after Obama’s speech in Cairo on June 4th. But on June 18th, 1953, Egypt officially declared that it was a full fledged republic, thus giving it a Gemini overlay. Where was Saturn on that day? In Libra again, at 20 degrees. So Egypt is passing through a second Saturn return cycle. Saturn will reach 20 degrees on Thursday, October 13th in 2011. The Libra Sun will be at 20 degrees the following day, Friday the 14th. It would seem that what’s taking place in Egypt right now, would ultimately culminate on or around that date.

Esoterically, both Saturn and The Sun, being at 20 degrees, creates a number of variables 2+0 = 2 and 2+0 = 2. 2+2 = 22 or 4. The number of the master builder (22) and the number of the base of the pyramid (4). Now whether this sequence has magical import, especially if you add 22 to 11 (20)11 equaling 33, is yet to be determined, but clearly the exact conjunction of the second Saturn return promises some form of resolution to Egypt’s current challenge to create an environment and government based on Libran ideals of fairness, balance, equanimity and equality.

This is illustrated by their unique form of protest over the past three days, showering troops with love, respecting private property and yet unleashing fury and rage on all things Mubarak. The protests have been initially fueled by that country’s first open and full bodied ability to express themselves in public, while tapping into their pent up frustration and rage, Scenes of singing and dancing co-mingle with shouts of fury at the national TV stations and police headquarters. In many ways, this typifies Saturn in Libra, bringing both sides of the emotional equation into balance.

Egypt is the land of Kemet, one of the most ancient religious and spiritual systems on the planet. There are 42 Kemetic Laws Of Maat. Here are just a few; I consume only my fair share, I communicate with compassion, I listen to opposing opinions, I respect the property of others, I am peaceful, I remain in balance with my emotions. Sounds just a little Libran doesn’t it? Taken together, as a whole, Kemetic Laws stress balance and equanimity in all things. An integrated self. This is what is bubbling through these protests, the ancient expression of The Laws Of Kemet, through the prism of Saturn in Libra.

As the protests continue, there are reports of looting and vandalism, which are obviously contrary to the spirit exhibited thus far. People are having to defend their homes and businesses as a result, draining energy and intention away from the greater goal. CNN has been reporting on this all day while being just slightly dismissive of the local perspective that these acts are being perpetrated by Mubarak’s goon squad. According to CNN, apparently a lot of folks in that part of the world “traffic in conspiracies.” Hey maybe they read David Icke and listen to Alex Jones as well?

In addition to Saturn in Libra, the 2/28/22 date also sees Jupiter in Libra at 17 degrees. When all of this really took off, Saturn was at 17 degrees in Libra, going retrograde, sitting right on top of Egypt’s first, natal Jupiter. In essence, they were both spiritually and astrologically returning to the time when they first liberated themselves in the 20th century. It’s a critical cycle, conjunction and return. The 2/28/22 date also sees a predominate amount of Pisces in the Egyptian solar chart (Sun, Moon, Venus and Uranus).

Another critical phase will be the new Moon in Pisces on 2/28, yes the date Egypt was unloosed from British rule. Lastly, tucked down there at the end of the solar chart is Chiron in Aries at 11 degrees. Chiron in Aries is fitful. It wants to lead but is wounded. Certainly, it can represent the political oppression and brutal treatment by Mubarak of The Egyptian people. They are obviously gaining in courage since Jupiter entered into Aries. Another key and interesting date does not loom that far off in the distance.

On 3/15 (The Ides Of March) Jupiter will be exactly conjunct Egypt’s Chiron at 11 degrees. This occurs just two days after the dramatic entrance of Uranus in Aries. Interestingly enough, Mubarak’s reign has elements of both Aries and Libra. He entered the political scene as the Vice President of Anwar Sadat on 4/15/75 and took over as president after Sadat was slain, on 10/7/81. Sadat himself was also deeply associated with Libra, taking office on 15 October, 1970 and was killed on 6 October, 1981. Guess what? Both Jupiter (18 degrees) AND Saturn (12 degrees) were in Libra when Sadat was murdered. In addition to the cycle of independence, which started in 1928 and reaffirmed in 1953, being activated during this Saturn cycle, the underlying energy of the death of Sadat is in play and the unresolved resolution and buried denial is also getting worked out. Get ready to see more images and threads regarding the life of Sadat, who he was and how he will emerge, nearly thirty years after his death as key symbol for the current situation in Egypt.

Jupiter In Aries Early Signature Moments

Flame on!

First it was disgruntled Bears fans burning Jay Cutler’s jersey. Then it got a lot more serious. Abdou Abdel-Monaam Hamadah, 48, a restaurant owner from Qantara, Egypt, set himself ablaze as a form of protest for not getting flour subsidies. According to The Telegraph; “He was said to have been complaining that he was unable to get bread coupons for his restaurant – Egypt has a system of flour subsidies in place in an attempt to combat widespread poverty.”

Setting himself on fire? Now that’s commitment.

But he was not alone. Also from The Telegraph;

“The incident was followed by a Mauritanian setting himself alight in Nouakchott. Yavoub Ould Dahoud, 42, stopped his car in front of the Senate, which is several feet from the presidency in the capital Nouakchott, before setting himself on fire.

Four Algerian men have also set themselves alight in the last week, all apparently inspired by the incident which set off the protests that culminated in the overthrow of Zine al-Abedine Ben Ali, Tunisia’s President, on Friday.”

It all started when Mohamed Bouazizi immolated himself in Tunisia on 12/12, as a precursor to Jupiter in Aries. In it’s most raw and potent sense, the individual as represented by Jupiter in Aries is literally on fire.

Volcano In Japan

Apparently, burning humans aren’t the only hot topic in the early days of Jupiter in Aries. Mt. Kirishima, one of Japan’s 100 great mountains became active for the first time in 50 years. We’re talking ash, fire. exploding rocks, etc. Yet another Jupiter in Aries related event. The shift from Uranus in Pisces to Aries on March 12th, will likely reflect even more intense volcanic and geo-thermal activity. Let’s hope whole communities decide to pass on the new rage, “The Immolation Sensation.”

Mt. Kirishima.

Real Time Update On Egypt, The Pluto In Scorp Generation And The Net Revolution

Egyptian Youth and the internet revolution.

The situation is fluid. That’s the dictum emerging from Washington regarding the revolt in Egypt. It’s midnight in Cairo now and people have not adhered to the curfew. Police have left the streets and the army has taken over. According to CNN, Mubarak’s son and wife are currently in London and according to Aljazeera, many high ranking officials and business leaders have also fled as well.

The energy of the riots/revolt are spreading to places like Jordan and even Albania. Tomorrow, it is likely that London will steal some of the headlines as massive protests are planned for London, Manchester and other cities in England. The protests will center on cuts to services and fee hikes. How has this all come about so suddenly and what do the planets have to say?

One of the key factors in Egypt is the amount of people under thirty. This group, known as Gen-Y, is the largest group of adults on the planet since the baby boomers. Astrologically, they fall mostly under the transit of Pluto in Scorpio. These kids are intense. They are not afraid of death and going to the edge. The protests were fueled by a 100,000 estimated youths, who have been mostly out of work and trying to figure out why their country has runaway inflation, no jobs and just 30% of the population living over the poverty line. This generation is Facebook friendly and Twitter wise and both of these new media tools have played a huge role in the early stages of organizing the protests.

As I mentioned in my last piece, Jupiter in Aries has been a major player in this movement. The energy of Jupiter at the final degrees of Pisces was brackish and stagnant. It felt like a dam was about to burst and in four short days, burst it has. Jupiter (expansion) Aries (The Individual) have converged. Mars and The Sun in Aquarius have also played a significant role as both embody the spirit of Aquarius, which is the celestial expression of democracy and the spirit of brotherhood. Aquarius is also hella rebellious when it feels as though injustice is taking place. Mars is the most strident expression of Aquarius. Of course, Aquarius is also deeply connected to the internet. As we have already noted, FB and Twitter have played a huge role in all of this.

Mubarak has finally emerged, and is addressing the people of Egypt. He has stated that he will not back down and will use force. He also said that he would dismiss the entire government but would not commit to new elections, filling out a new slate with a cabinet of his choice. In real time, I can tell you that the speech did not go over well.

The Sag Moon is currently sextiling the Aquarian Sun and it will catch up with Venus, also in Sag. Emotions will be inflamed and the desire to break free, will likely over ride Hosni Mubarak’s promises for change. Look for Sunday to be a key day in the ongoing revolt and a turning point in the crisis. Right now, until Sunday, the sky is filled with fire (Sag and Aries) and air (Aquarius and Libra). The situation is more than fluid. It’s combustible.

Postscript. This might be the most civil revolt on record. Reports are that protesters are not engaged in random, anarchic destruction, which is prevalent in the G8 and G20 protests. Protesters are showing great respect for private property and individuals, including the army, while directing their anger at all things Mubarak.

Riots In Egypt, Jupiter In Aries, Orion, Sirius And Antares

Wild in the streets

The Fertile Crescent is on fire. Egypt appears to be waking from a 3,000 year old slumber as rioters clash with with police in violent confrontations, not about Islam or Christianity or Judaism, but of survival, of oppression and the rising costs of goods and services. Not far from Egypt, Yemen is also simmering. Tunisia and Algeria are already embroiled in their regime changes. Where it all started is likely where it all begins. Jupiter in Aries is just four-days-old and already the flames of unrest and the cries of the individual co-mingle. It’s always challenging when viewing revolts from afar. We do not know who is fanning the flames or why and to what end, but I do know that such activity in such a concentrated area like North Africa can spread quickly. Is it a controlled burn or is it a flat out blaze of fury? It might be too early to tell, but the situation bears watching, since there seems to be some sort of chronological symmetry with what’s taking place now.

Jupiter In Aries 0 Degrees And The Cutler Burn

Notice the “6,” six stripes and six letters in Cutler.

Jay Cutler (Taurus) became one of the first, public expressions of Jupiter in Aries and not in a flattering way. Cutler plays quarterback for The Chicago Bears, who played The Green Bay Packers this past Sunday, for the championship of the NFC, aka as “The Halas Trophy.” The trophy is named after George Halas, former coach and owner of the very same Bears, one of footballs founding fathers.

Cutler is not known for his warm and engaging personality. Nor is he known for his fiery spirit. He’s more known for being a type 2 diabetic, with a rocket arm and a reality star girl friend (Kristin Cavallari). After being traded from The Denver Broncos, he bombed in is first season as a Bear. There were audible whispers in Chicago that Cutler was approaching bust level. He was also rumored to not take care of his body and party a little too much, especially for someone with diabetes. But this year was a different story. Under the tutelage of Mike Martz (Taurus) his new offensive coordinator, Cutler regained the form he flashed in one, scintillating season in Denver. He did this while being sacked a league high 55 times, suffering one concussion. In essence, Jay Cutler took a beating this year. His reward? He got to play in at least two more games.

Two weeks ago, he and Martz carved up the Seattle defense and Cutler was being mentioned in the same discussion as Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger. All that changed on Sunday.

In the frigid air of Chicago, two bitter, regional rivals staged a war on the permafrost shores of Lake Michigan. The Packers were not The Seahawks though. They were a far more talented team than Seattle, giving Cutler sophisticated and cagey looks on defense, stifling his ability to throw, harassing him on every play, pounding him into the icy dirt of Soldier Field. One sack however changed Jay Cutler and maybe how we exchange information, thanks to the martial thrust of Jupiter in Aries. Continue reading “Jupiter In Aries 0 Degrees And The Cutler Burn”
